Splash

FREE SWIM LESSONS FOR ALL FIRST & SECOND GRADERS!
Splash is a national YMCA program that has had great success in many communities. Second grade children in the Spencer school system have been targeted because drowning is second only to motor vehicle accidents as the leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States in children of that age group. Beginning with this session, children currently enrolled in second grade may sign up for the Spencer Family YMCA progressive swim lesson program free of charge whether you are a member or a program participant. This program will be incorporated in the following sessions: Fall I, Fall II, Winter I, Winter II, Spring, Summer I & Summer II. Children may only sign up for one session and must be enrolled in second grade during the 2012/2013 school year. Please stop by the Member Services Center to sign up!
